Dig It

If your neighbor's dog dug under your fence and into your yard, what would you do? Would your answer change if it happened multiple times? What if the neighbor had taken steps to block dog from digging under the fence, but pup was determined and got around the anti-digging measures?

Well, we don't have a fence and this has happened (it's a rather rural area so dogs do wander around) and it wasn't a big deal. Rusty and his friend tend to say hi once in a while, we just don't go outside or encourage them (Rusty looks to have fleas).

Now if we had a fence and there was digging involved I'd get genuinely annoyed because fixing the holes would be a pain and then my step-dog could get out. If the neighbor was showing efforts to stop their dog from doing so I'd still be annoyed, but not at the person or even the dog, just the situation. I'd probably try something like putting mesh around the fence to discourage digging.
